This tutorial is written based on the US method of producing the CO2 cars.

In the UK the finished car is grafted to a template that orients the model bore to a block that is the billet size in Y and Z. As a result he model will always fit in the billet.

The US method can result in cars that do not fit the billet so they have to be positioned correctly within Quick CAM.
